Today’s date is 02-02-2020. That makes it a Palindrome. Do you know what that is? It reads the same any way you read it – left to right or right ot left!
A Palindromic date like this will only happen again after 101 years! When the calendar is 12-12-2121. It’s happened before also – 11-11-1111.
Here’s the definition of the word: Palindrome is a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backwards as forwards, e.g. madam.
The word comes from a Greek word called – Palindromos ‘running back again’. Palin means ‘again’ and Drom comes from Dramein, which means ‘to run’.
